Can not find Virtualization Technology (VTx) option in BIOS v2.14.1219

HP Pavilion HPE h8-1280t CTO Desktop PC
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am trying to follow https://support.hp.com/nz-en/product/hp-z1-workstation/5230510/document/c04760917 to enable Security > System Security > Virtualization Technology (VTx) but I don't even see that option in my BIOS. All I can see is the first one - Data Execution Prevention.

 

My CPU is Intel-Core-i7-3960X and I verify it supports VT-x.

I also check my win10 system info -

Could anyone help me to find and enable Virtualization Technology (VT-x) in my desktop?

Would it help if I upgrade BIOS to latest version (below) ?

Thank you so much!

No I can not. I can only see the first option even though I just updated to last version of BIOS. This is because my version is too old?

Unfortunately, I don't know why your PC doesn't have the setting, and I don't know a way to get the setting to show up.

 

It should be there regardless of what BIOS revision you are running.

 

The processor supports VT.

Thanks for your response.

 

I found out the motherboard is IPIWB-PB (Pittsburgh).  Maybe I need to adjust jumper to solve this?

When HP assembled this PC, maybe they put this CPU in this motherboard and BISO which didn't support Virtualization Tech (VTx)?

 

Getting frustrated... seems like there is no way to reach out to HP technician for the support.

Even if this HP PC was made in 2012, it cost almost $3000. If I have no choice but to buy a new PC because of this issue, I don't think I would buy from HP again.
